Remarks

Georgia O’Keeffe later identified this woman as a maid at the Lake George house, possibly Jennie. The date is based on Stieglitz’s letter to Herbert Seligmann regarding photographs made of “the chambermaid 2 years ago” (26 August 1922 [YCAL]), and the checklist for Stieglitz’s 1923 exhibition.
